    Any clue on whether switchable graphics will make a return? If so, what's the dedicated card? nVidia/ATI?

    Anyone want to venture an estimate on the price of the 14", i5, 6550 or 6650? Would it still be $800 or less?

    Also, if someone has the 4820TG, would it be possible to replace the i5 in the 4820TG with the new i5? Here's a quick comparison of the two CPUs from intel.

    Compare Intel® Products,


    Would this yield any improvement?

    I think they both will use PGA988 type socket.

    Right as I was about to pick up a refreshed 3820tg.

    Now I may decide to wait... though who knows when it will eventually make it to Canada (if ever.)

    I don't have to worry about these new 3820tg's, since the graphic cards they'll have will virtually be the same as the current ones.

    How about the processing power? Compared to say...the i5-480m?

    Damn, suddenly my 4820TG seems ancient...

    Would love the USB 3.0.

    Would be a significant boost I'd say, but won't change the gaming performance by any stretch of imagination since the 5650 / 6550 are wayy behind in power than the i5's and are thus bottlenecks. For all other raw processing power tasks (encoding etc) it'll be two-digit percentage faster afaik (if new i5 SBs are boosted as much as new i7 SBs).

    The main attraction is the USB 3.0 and new keyboards, the new chassis would be interesting too.

    Wouldn't the recall affect the launch date?
    Also do you guys think I should wait if I only want something without dedicated graphics? The Acer Aspire TimelineX AS3820T-6480 is going for like $600 on Amazon

    That doesn't have a dedicated graphics card.
